by Anonymousreply 2405/22/2020

It seems Tara Reade got into law school without a bachelor’s degree. She also testified as an expert witness in domestic abuse cases based on being a lawyer who was a “legislative aide” to Joe Biden when he wrote the Violence Against Women Act. Turns out she wasn’t a legislative aide but was a staff aide.

She also claimed to have been given a “secret” BA degree by the president of Antioch College. She was using a different name back then to hide from her husband using the claim of domestic violence.

[quote] Ms. Reade told The New York Times that she had obtained her degree through a “protected program” for victims of spousal abuse, which, court records show, she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband in the mid-1990s. That history, she said, caused her to change her name, leading to confusion about her status at the school. She later received a law degree from Seattle University.

[quote] But an Antioch spokeswoman, Karen Hamilton, told The Times that while Ms. Reade had attended classes, she was certain Ms. Reade had not received a degree.

[quote] She testified as an expert in a domestic violence case where defense nce attorneys “raised objections to Ms. Reade’s testimony, according to the transcript, saying they were skeptical that her work experience qualified her as an expert. The judge overruled them.“

[quote] Ms. Reade also told the court that she was currently a substitute teacher but had worked in domestic violence prevention for more than two decades and testified in more than 20 cases. Her career began, she said, in Mr. Biden’s office.

[quote] “I was a legislative assistant,” she said, according to the testimony. “He worked on the Violence Against Women Act, the federal act.”

Looks like at least one court case is going to be thoroughly reviewed & probably thrown out.

by Anonymousreply 2505/22/2020

[quote] Now, Mr. Soltesz says he is exploring whether he can reopen his case. On Wednesday evening, he emailed a network of more than 100 public defenders, alerting them to questions about Ms. Reade’s background and credibility.

[quote] Monique S. Hill, a lawyer in another domestic violence case in which Ms. Reade served as an expert witness, said she also saw grounds to challenge the conviction.

[quote] “Had I had the information that I have now, this case, in my mind, would have gone differently,” said Ms. Hill, who served as a public defender.

[quote] The Monterey County chief assistant district attorney, Berkley Brannon, said that if Ms. Reade had misrepresented her academic credentials, the office would alert all defense lawyers involved in cases that featured her as an expert.

“That would absolutely be of concern to us, and it’s something that the defense attorneys would need to know about,” he said. “We don’t want people that we call lying about anything.”

[quote] He said the office would not make any move to contact defense lawyers until it was satisfied that she indeed had not obtained her bachelor’s degree. And, speaking hypothetically, he said that the extent to which a false academic claim would affect the cases she participated in would depend on how material her testimony was to the outcome.

[quote] The Sixth District Appellate Program, a state-funded public interest law firm that represents low-income clients in the region, is also reviewing all the cases involving Ms. Reade.

[quote] Ms. Reade maintains that she has an undergraduate degree, saying the school has no record of her graduating because of special arrangements put in place to protect her from her ex-husband. She sent The Times a screenshot of a transcript showing her with 35 course credits, her department as “BA Completion” and nothing listed under “date conferred” or “degree conferred.” According to the photo, she entered school on Oct. 2, 2000.

[quote] Credits from her earlier studies at Pasadena City College were linked to her old social security number and name — the same one she now uses — making her worried that her ex-husband could find her and her daughter, she says. To protect her identity as a survivor of domestic abuse, Ms. Reade says she received her degree through the private assistance of the school’s then-president, Tullisse Murdock. She says she never received a diploma or requested one since she was “fast-tracked” to law school.

[quote] “The president took it from the registrar and did it herself for complete confidentiality,” she said in an interview.

[quote] But Ms. Hamilton, the Antioch spokeswoman, told The Times that it had spoken with Ms. Murdock, and that there was no such special arrangement with Ms. Reade. It takes 180 credits to graduate, and students earn up to a maximum of 45 for life experience or prior studies, according to the school’s website.

[quote] Seattle University School of Law confirmed that Ms. Reade graduated with a J.D. degree in 2004. The school only considers accepting students with bachelor’s degrees, according to its website. But it would not share what degree Ms. Reade presented with her initial application, citing federal privacy standards.

R71: She exaggerated her role on Biden’s staff — it was more of an office assistant than a legislative policy assistant, which would perhaps mean a bachelor’s degree was not required.

by Anonymousreply 8405/23/2020

r81, you are as stupid as the POTUS. In 1993, she was quite an attractive woman.

Even Megan Kelly didn't believe her. When she was interviewed on some Court TV show. She said it wasn't her changing of her stories that she found not credible. It was the part of the story she didn't change. The attack in the open of the halls of the Senate which she placed Biden haven spoken to someone minutes before she approached to hand him his gym bag. To risk doing that in the open, with a chance of being seen. He wasn't known as reckless Joe.

But Tara Reade has conveniently changed her story about Good and Bad Biden to suit the things she needs. He is a wonderful man who fights for women when it can help her. Be it exaggerating the work she did for him to riding off his coattails in legislative legacy to get expert witness jobs.

To lying about her academic credentials to get work and sympathy.

She is a habitual accuser. Her ex-husband claims she is confabulating childhood abuse to him. I don't know if he is telling the truth or not but he denies being an abuser. She used that story for sympathy and to get custody of her child.

Something happened to turn her into a chronic liar. I don't want to accuse her father because he is dead and can't defend himself but the fact that his novel scene sounds just like her accusation is telling.

While she got her 15 minutes of fame, and now people are over here. All those cases she was paid to give testimony might be open to appeal.

by Anonymousreply 8505/23/2020

I feel sad for any real victims that have their abusers case turned over because she's a liar. Enough about her looks too. Looks are irrelevant. It's about someone getting press and in no way being credible. It's a lot like the Jussie case, where everyone just ran with it before waiting for an investigation. I think cases like this should not be publicly exposed before investigations are started and there's at least some evidence.

R86, but if it hadn’t been brought out publicly, there wouldn’t have been an army of reporters to find the dirt on her. Maybe a regular attorney or DA wouldn’t have had those resources and maybe they wouldn’t have found it. Some of her arrests were under other names, like her married name, and it was a long time ago.

I agree, it’s a shame to accuse people of something like this and then it turns out it was nothing. But vetting these claims tends to end a lot of them pretty quick.

The main damage is Bernie Bros are now calling Biden a rapist at every opportunity and telling people not to vote because “it’s an election between two rapists.”

No, it’s an election between a rapist and a candidate smeared by a mentally deranged female Bernie Bro, who wants to slander a candidate for attention and to help Bernie.

It’s kinda wonderful how all the shit came oozing out about her.

Her poor daughter.

Though she must have known what her mother was like after all these years. If she wasn’t a grifter herself, she must have at least seen her mother’s latest stunt as true to form.

Can one die of M.E.R.?

by Anonymousreply 9005/23/2020

R90, I know a woman like this who has a grown daughter. She has several children but one daughter is her favorite. When I knew her, she was always talking about that one daughter and how everything she did was perfect. The daughter married a loser who couldn’t hold a job and had a bunch of kids. The mother ran scams to support herself and the daughter, even after the daughter was married to this ne’er-do-well.

I finally had the opportunity to meet the daughter. She was a petulant, spoiled, ungrateful brat. Surprisingly to me, after her mother had done an endless number of despicable acts to support her, she hated her mother with the heat of a thousand suns. That really surprised me because these two were two peas in a pod. And she always took the money.

The mother seemed oblivious to the hate and resentment that was absolutely radiating from her daughter. Or maybe she knew and was trying to buy her affections. It wasn’t working. First time I ever felt sorry for the mother. She was a piece of work that congratulated herself on running successful scams and had absolutely no remorse. Her love for her daughter was her only redeeming trait.

So that’s how it ends.

Also the weather records for dc in 1993 are archived and it was mostly cold to mild during the time she claims to be assaulted, I think the warmest day was around 80 the entire month.

She claimed she was wearing crotch less panties because she had a date that night. Hard core Bernie supporters Katie halper Nathan Robinson and Ryan Grimm pushed her story. Grimm was the one that outed Christine Blasey fords name.

Or that pic is from 30 yrs ago and she is now in her 50s, with an average 50 yr old body. How many 50 yr olds retain their 20 yr old body?

Lawyers tend to fire clients that lie to them. So after she got checked out, the lawyer probably investigated her more and found out she was lying about a bunch of things. Some of those things are probably not public knowledge.

I have been around long enough to have worn both garter belts + stockings, then panty hose. If you had a form-fitting skirt or dress, garter belt clips would definitely ruin the line of the garment. Others have posted about having to re-adjust your stockings regularly due to slippage and wrinkling. These were not exactly comfortable either.

There were stockings with elasticized tops that supposedly would stay up without a garter belt. Never really worked, and they went off of the market pretty quickly.

Pantyhose were wonderful development. By the 90s, there were every type of design for comfort, from light support to active wear. It made a difference when you were working/standing for long hours and it was the only real way to have that no "panty line" look under slacks.

Do I believe a woman would wear crotchless panties, plus garter belt & stockings, all day under her business dress for a boyfriend surprise that night? LOL, no. Maybe tuck the special garments in her purse for a quick change after work. She won't be able to explain crotchless panties and panty liner.

There are so many holes in her stories, with details that make no sense.

Out of interest, are you a man or a woman, R116?

Woman.

Exactly how does someone with her record and credibility issues benefit Bernie Sanders by her professing to be a supporter? She's like an all-purpose ruiner, smearing shit on both Sanders and Biden. Both candidates are damaged by her claims.

I believe that was the intention. My take on her is that she's a paid Russian asset.

She's nothing now. She's ovah.

First-term U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who won the DFL Party endorsement this weekend in her re-election bid, told the Sunday Times of London that she believes Tara Reade, a former U.S. Senate staffer who has leveled sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Omar also told the Times that if it were up to her, Biden wouldn't be the Democratic presidential nominee.

Omar needs to be defeated, even if it is by a Repug. Omar is despicable for supporting a known liar and scam artist.

Omar is really not very bright.

Apparently a lot of the Somali constituents who voted her in aren't very happy with her because she keeps promoting inconsequential causes they don't care about or are hostile towards. Her personal life is a mess and is extremely haram as far as most Muslims are concerned. Meanwhile, establishment Dems already want to take her behind the woodshed, and now she's promoting an obvious pathological liar to try to get Bernie as the nominee. Even if she somehow wins reelection, she will never, ever accomplish anything in that position.

R122, I hope Biden literally shits on her.

R119, there was an old lady character on Laugh-In, Gladys I think, who wore garters. Her stockings were constantly sagging around her ankles and looked horrible. That’s what they were really like. They twisted all around and were just awful to deal with, you were constantly struggling with them. No one’s going to work like that, it would drive them nuts. They just fell down your legs like they were hip waders. Even the garter belt only does so much.

When I was young and dumb, in the late 1980s, I bought a garter belt and stockings just to try them out and wore them to dinner out. It was horrible. Stockings sagging around the ankles and baggy knees every two seconds. Those stockings were polyester but not exactly like modern stockings either. They were shaped, which means they had a formed foot shape with a heel built in. That’s why they were always bagging and sagging. They were wrinkled at the front of the ankle and it showed. If you’re thinking of L’Eggs stockings, only held up with a garter belt, that wasn’t it at all. It was the worst of all worlds. I hope modern garter belt stockings are made better now, but that’s what you could get back then.

Pre-WWII seamed garter stockings were made of silk, and they needed the silk for parachutes in WWII. After the war they invented nylon, which eventually evolved into panty hose. I’m guessing silk worked better, but those 80s-90s era nylon, fake old-fashioned garter belt stockings, like the ones with the seams in back, were shaped with calves and heels and everything, they were the shape of a leg. There wasn’t enough elasticity in them to not have wrinkles. Uncomfortable. Not something you would work in all day.

Here’s some vintage 1980s retro revival era stockings sold on Etsy. That’s a mannequin leg and you can see that they’re really wrinkled, even on the mannequin. There’s just no cling in them. And they snagged very easily as you can see, because the nylon wasn’t the L’Eggs kind, it was a different quality. Not as good.

Kelly McGuinness wore them in Top Gun in 1986. I think by 1993 that fad would have been long over.

That whole, wearing a garter belt to work, isn’t she sexy thing was more of a 1980s, big hair, Hollywood thing for movies and video than a real thing. And porn, where they can stop the camera to adjust every few minutes if they have to. Not real life.

And they must have been super conservative about dress code in a 1993 Washington Senator’s office. Back then, they had policy and procedure handbooks at conservative offices and if you didn’t meet the professional standards, they sent you home. Those manuals described slips, nude or white bra colors, you name it. No straps showed, no underwear showing. Somebody dressing like a hooker to work in a Senator’s office would have been taken aside.

These are just some of the many reasons that every woman who lived through that era just can’t believe what this woman is saying. It’s just so far-fetched it’s ridiculous.

You can say this all you want. She’s going to be re-elected by her constituents.

i would be very happy if Omar, AOC, and Tlaib all lose their primaries.

I'm sure Nancy Pelosi had some less that pleasant words for her.

by Anonymousreply 12905/25/2020

Well, she wasn't the jackpot the Repugs hoped for. But the fact that they trotted her out in Spring of election year is telling. Are they using her to lay the groundwork for future accusations? Trump said a lot more was coming.

The rapey stuff is Trump's biggest drawback with women. If they can even the playing field by besmirching Biden... Never underestimate the Russiapublicans; they are always plotting- even years in advance.
